Power Outages Persist in Alexandria

Update at 4:40 p.m. — The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and Port City Brewing have both reopened. AWLA will be open for business and adoptions until 7 p.m. The storm-related outage near Inova Alexandria Hospital is still ongoing.

Earlier: Some 250 Dominion customers in Alexandria are still in the dark following yesterday’s storms.

That’s down from the nearly 4,000 outages reported in the city last night, primarily in the West End, but the remaining outages are causing some problems.

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria says it is “closed until further notice” due to an ongoing outage at its headquarters at 4101 Eisenhower Avenue. The shelter is not taking any additional animals from Alexandria animal control, per scanner traffic.

“Our power is out currently, though we have a backup generator so that we still have the functions essential to our animals’ (and staff’s) health and safety,” AWLA spokeswoman Gina Hardter tells ARLnow. “However, the outage limits the capabilities of some of our customer service functions, which is why we are currently closed for business.”

“Our team is working hard to make sure that the animals are safe and comfortable until power is restored, and we will announce on our website and social media when we reopen for business,” Hardter added.

Port City Brewing is also affected by the outage. Power is expected to be restored to Port City, AWLA and other affected Dominion customers along Duke Street and Eisenhower Avenue by 5 p.m., according to the utility company’s website.

For another storm-related outage near Inova Alexandria Hospital, affecting just over 100 Dominion customers, restoration is currently estimated between 6-11 p.m.
